Summary
  • "Who are the companions of important contemporary artists? The art collector Anna Lenz explores this question in 20 conversations, providing insights not only into a wide variety of women's biographies, but also into ways of living with an artist
  • "Since the 1960s Anna Lenz and her husband have built a magnificent collection of the art of the Epoche ZERO. For this book she has travelled across Europe together with the photographer Roswitha Pross and the art historian Ulrike Schmitt to conduct interviews and ask the partners and wives of artists about their lives. These women, some of whom are themselves artists, speak with great openness about their families, their childhood dreams, their own professional trajectories, about prevailing circumstances and life plans, and also about the often overwhelming first meetings and their relationships with their men. This kaleidoscope of reports about their lives constitutes a chapter in the history of art, and a piece of contemporary history."--Publisher's website
